Your Old Guitar (YOG) DVD Videos.
Everything You Need to See Inside Vintage Fender Stratocaster & Telecaster Guitars
and vintage Les Pauls from the Classic Years
For Vintage Guitar Owners, Enthusiasts, Collectors, Buyers or Sellers.

Do you have an old guitar and want to try and figure out what year it was made, and how original it is? Perhaps you're confused if the finish is original or parts have been replaced. Or maybe you are buying a guitar and you're unsure if it's 'original'. Perhaps you just want to see what the inside looks like of an original 1954 Fender Stratocaster, or 1952 Telecaster, or 1959 Les Paul Sunburst.

The "Your Old Guitar" (YOG) series of videos will help show what's what in original vintage guitars. Three "regular guys" (Shaggy, Klyde and Norm) who are *not* guitar dealers, but who have been collecting for years and years, will show you all the details that can help you make informed decisions about vintage guitars.

If you are selling or buying a vintage guitar, you need to know what make, model and year it is, and how original the instrument is. Condition and originality are everything when it comes to vintage guitar collecting, so knowing the pedigreed and originality of an instrument is paramount to its value. The Your Old Guitar videos will help you figure out the exact year and how original an instrument is.

If you are interested in collecting, purchasing or selling a vintage guitar, you just can't trust dealers or auction ads to give accurate information. Instead you need to know what you are buying or selling, and preferably from someone that is independent. For this, Shaggy, Klyde and Norm are your men! Simply put, this is the information that some vintage guitar dealers do not want you to have. So are Shaggy, Norm and Klyde big hollywood executives? Is Your Old Guitar a high dollar production video? No on both accounts, but for the meager $14 price (including shipping!), you'll see and learn a TON about vintage Fender Strats and Teles. Frankly there's probably no better vintage guitar value out there. And heck it's also entertaining (the Boys have an easy going, light hearted style).

Fender Telecaster
1950 to 1969,

Now Available.
The first "Your Old Guitar" video, about the vintage Fender Telecaster. Two hours of nothing but vintage Teles from 1950 to 1969. Everything you need to know about the inside out of these guitars is shown. A dozen original 1950s and 1960s guitars are shown in detail and taken apart and dissected, displaying the guts of everything Telecaster. Includes all the major Telecaster models of the 1950s and 1960s like the "black guard" Tele, "white guard" Tele, Custom Tele, "slab board" Tele, "veneer board" Tele, Tele Thinline, the case evolution, and how they compare in sound is all shown in 120 minutes of pure Telecaster madness.

Fender Stratocaster
1954 to 1965,

Now Available.

The second YOG video released, it's all you ever wanted to know about "pre-CBS" Fender Stratocasters during it's more collectible era, from 1954 to 1965. Similar to the Telecaster video in style and format, but it's all vintage Stratocaster down to the nuts and bolts. Examples are examined from 1954 to 1965 in very high detail, with at least one Strat shown from nearly every year 1954 to 1965. Ash body maple neck Stratocasters to rosewood "slab" boards to "veneer" rosewood board Strats are dissected. Two hours of small Stratocaster peghead heaven! An array of original and clean vintage Strats shown in extreme detail.

On-Line YOG Video Teasers.
Below is a one minute "teaser" video from the Your Old Guitar "Telecaster 1950 to 1969" and "Stratocaster 1954 to 1965" videos. These should give some idea of what the videos are all about, the format, camera work and quality. Please select the appropriate format and transfer speed (of course the actual videos are much higher quality than these web teasers). If using Media Player, version 7.0 or higher is required (if you have 6.4, only the audio will play with no video). Music by the Filter Kings and Junkhouse.

Coming Soon (New YOG Vids).
YOG3 - Gibson Les Pauls.

We get this question a lot, and yes we are working on some new YOG videos. The one that is the most challenging is the upcoming 1952 to 1960 Gibson Les Paul video. We are still working the editing, so I'm not sure when it will be released. It's taking quite a bit longer than I ever imagined.
